High Strung is a 1991 American independent comedy film directed by Roger Nygard, created by Film Brigade International and produced by Vladimir Horunzhy and Sergei Zholobetsky. It stars Steve Oedekerk -who also wrote the script with Robert Kuhn- as Thane Furrows, an uptight children's author who rarely leaves his house, eats only cereal, and is irritated by everything around him. It also stars Thomas F. Wilson, Fred Willard, Denise Crosby, Jani Lane, and Jim Carrey, and also contains a short cameo appearance by a young Kirsten Dunst. Despite the lack of a release on DVD, High Strung has developed and maintained a strong cult fan base. It was Jim Carrey's 13th film role.
